This past Christmas Vicky convinced me to return to the pool. When I stopped serious triathlon way back in 2006, I left the swimming pool behind. Honestly, I was over it! Vicky has reignited my passion for swimming and although I only swim twice per week these days, I look forward to each and every session. Vicky has an amazing personality, a personality that has entrenched itself in all members of the squad. The squad atmosphere is brilliant, true camaraderie and I love the banter. There’s a place for everyone … the newbie, the rookie, the mum juggling kids and family life, the old slow pro, the newbie pro, the x-swimmer who swims like a fish (she hurts me!)! No-one should feel intimidated … all are welcome. I have travelled the world; there are few if any squads quite like this one.
